Clarification of the County notices re our footpaths

please find below information that I received today

 Hi Josie

 The following link will give you an overview of the situation:-

 http://www.somerset.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/rights-of-way/protecting-land-from-becoming-a-public-right-of-way-or-registered-as-a-town-village-green/

 To summarise, any landowner can deposit a statement and plan with the county council in order to protect themselves again any claims for additional Rights of Way over there property. Similarly, they can deposit a statement which protects them against a claim for a Town or Village Green on the land. Following changes to the legislation we now have to place notices at entry points to the land to inform the public of this.

 

No changes are planned to the existing Rights of Way.

 

I hope that this helps but if you need further clarification then please contact me.

 

Kind regards
